Five Signs it May Be Time for Dermal Fillers
Aging is a natural process that no one can escape. Unfortunately, the outer effects of aging often develop far earlier than a person would like. When these telltale signs of aging become apparent, they can take a toll on a person’s confidence. The good news is there are cosmetic treatments that can address the signs of aging and restore a more refreshed and youthful appearance.
At her plastic surgery practice, Dr. Tracy E. McCall offers a full range of skin rejuvenation treatments that enhance the tone and texture of the skin, and address problems such as lines, wrinkles, creases, and a loss of facial volume. Specifically, dermal fillers can greatly enhance the appearance of facial skin that has become worn down by the effects of aging and exposure to environmental elements. Here, we discuss five signs that indicate it may be time for dermal fillers treatment at our Milwaukee, WI plastic surgery practice.
1. The Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Fine lines and wrinkles are not only the most common sign of aging, but they are also one of the earliest signs of aging. It is not unusual for facial lines to develop when a person is in his or her 30s. Dermal fillers are a safe and effective option for fine lines and wrinkles. These injections are administered beneath the outer layer of skin to fill in the creases that form wrinkles.
2. The Presence of Deep Creases and Folds
Deeper creases and folds may develop in the area between the eyes, the space between the nose and the corners of the mouth (known as nasolabial folds), and the area between the mouth and chin (referred to as marionette lines). Patients who want to address these creases without undergoing surgery may be good candidates for dermal fillers. Dermal fillers can plump the skin to fill in deep creases and folds.
3. Facial Features Appear Sunken In
The skin loses elasticity with age, and the skin becomes thinner. As a result, many patients notice that their facial features begin to hollow out or appear sunken in. The skin beneath the eyes and the cheeks are especially prone to this. Dermal fillers can restore volume and fill in sunken features to provide a more vibrant and alert appearance.
4. The Face Lacks Definition
Many people lack the strong bone structure they desire. With dermal fillers, Dr. McCall can refine a patient’s facial structure and create more defined cheeks, a stronger jaw line, or fuller lips. These fillers add volume and stimulate collagen production to provide patients with fuller and more proportionate facial features.
5. A Decline in Self-confidence
Most people think of cosmetic treatment as a superficial enhancement, but the true goal of cosmetic treatment is to improve the way a person feels. Dermal filler treatment is a safe and effective option that allows patients to reverse the signs of aging and enhance their natural beauty so that they feel better on the inside.
